Queensland has built a reputation for using best-practice solutions across the mining and resources industry – from exploration to mineral processing and infrastructure. Our companies are diverse, highly skilled, and have put Queensland’s mining capabilities in the global spotlight.

  • Queensland is recognised globally as a leading destination for mining and resources investment and as Australia’s gateway to Asian markets.
  • Queensland’s diverse geology and resource potential place it second in the world for seaborne coal exports, second for lead production, third for zinc and bauxite production, and fifth in the world for silver production.
  • By the end of this decade, Queensland is projected to be the world’s leading liquefied natural gas (LNG) producer.

Abundant resources

Queensland is rich in natural resources. The state has more than 30 billion tonnes of coal deposits, along with metals, phosphate rock, oil shale and minerals.
